 Going the last week of April for work but have a lot of free time and bringing my wife so looking for stuff to do (first time in San Fran).  

Everyone recommends the Alcatraz tour so that's on the list, but can't decide whether to do the day tour or night tour, here's what the website says:

Q. How are the Day and Night Tours different?

A. The Alcatraz Day Visit includes the transportation to the island and an award-winning audio tour in the prison Cellhouse with actual interviews of former guards and inmates. The Night Tour is a unique program limited to just a few hundred visitors per evening that includes special programs, tours and activities not offered during the day. Roundtrip ferry transportation, a live boat narration, a guided tour from Dock to Cellhouse, the Cellhouse Audio Tour, a keepsake souvenir brochure, recreation use fee, and a variety of special programs and presentations offered only at night are all included.


Any suggestions for this and any other cool stuff to do?

i was just there for a week with the wife. we did a tour that consisted of visiting muir woods in the morning( where the redwoods are ) and then hitting sonama valley for a bunch of wine tastings at different vinyards. they stopped for lunch in sonoma. that was an amazing day.

we did the alkatraz day tour. well worth it if you havent done it. the audio tour is great.

we rented bicycles at the wharf and followed the shore and crossed the golden gate. then rode down sausalito for lunch and caught a ferry back. this also was a great experience for a few hours.

tons of shopping can be done in union square if you want to spend some money. all the big stores are there.

great place and i will definately go back some time.
